“Homegrown” best describes the third annual “H is for Harvest” auction fundraiser for Hood River Valley Residents Committee on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 6-9 p.m. at Springhouse Cellars.

The event features the swinging blues of OBO — Ontiveros, Bonham and Ortleib — local beer, wine and complimentary appetizers and dessert from the Huck Truck with more food for purchase. Auctioneer extraordinaire David Griffith will preside.

Most of the donated auction items are from Hood River and the Gorge regions where residents have trusted HRVRC to protect this valley and promote wise land use planning for 40 years, stated a press release.
